  1. Those sundials are beautiful! The clock tower in San Marco is my favorite clock tower in all of Italy. I visited Venice for the first time in 1979 and it was covered with scaffolding. I was very disappointed. It took me 22 years to return but I got to finally see the tower and the two mori.
    The tour of the clock tower sounds very interesting. I never knew about the Three Wise Men and the Angel. I would also love to be in Venice on Ascension Day or the Epiphany to see them coming out. BTW, Ascension Day was this past Thursday, May 1st.

  2. Beautiful photos, Girasoli……I’m starting to wish I had kept my Venice reservation after all!
    The Mondovi fresco (at least, I think it’s a fresco!) is very lovely. I’ll have to look that one up in your archives.

  3. Great photos!
    I love how that clock tower in Venice covers all the bases in terms of time…moon and Madonna cycles plus astrological phases plus the “normal” days and hours. Like MariaI, it was several trips before I got to see it without scaffolding….that restoration lasted about a decade, I think. I want to take that tour next time I’m in Venice!

  4. Thank you everyone for your very kind words. Because I love clock towers and sundials and have taken so many photos of them over the years, I had a difficult time deciding which ones to post. I tried to display a variety of ways time is measured.
    The Venice Clock Tower is also my favorite clock tower in Italy. The first two times I visited Venice, it was still being refurbished. The third time, the refurbishing was done but the tours had not yet begun. I was so thrilled when I found out that tours were available when planning my fourth trip to Venice.
    The Mondovì photo however is my favorite. The building was so beautiful in person.
    Thanks again everyone for your comments :)
